Hreinn Friðfinnsson at MOAD, Miami

Hreinn Friðfinnsson‘s solo exhibition For the Time Being is on view at the Museum of Art and Design in Miami, Florida. Spanning six decades, this first American museum exhibition of Fridfinnsson highlights the artist’s use of minimal gestures to transform everyday materials into poetic, allusive, and revelatory works of art. The exhibition is on view until 1 May 2022.

Fridfinnsson’s art is often recursive and contingent, casting a wide net of references, often to others of the artist’s works. The works aligne with contemporaneous cutting-edge art movements, such as land art and photoconceptualism, but still suggest the distinctively romantic, lyrical, and wry sensibility.

Watch the artist look back on his practice and on specific works that embody his distinctive world view in the video.
